The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) together with the West African Development Bank (BOAD) and the Central African Forest Commission (COMIFAC) organized a workshop aiming at strengthening the capacity in terms of climate technologies and engaging with the private sector. The event took place in Douala, Cameroon. 

“As an entrepreneur, I welcome and appreciate the CTCN efforts to mobilize the private sector and build their capacity to achieve more through climate finance. It is a good start. I do believe that more should be done at a local level. The real impact happens when we implement the projects with green components at a local level. I am happy to contribute to this workshop and I look forward to the next one with the hope that there will be much more participants from the private sector, especially local entrepreneurs and local financial institutions”, noted Mr. Hervé Azemtza, S2 service.

The aim of the two-day workshop in the Africa region was to showcase transformational climate technologies with local stakeholders and climate focal points and mobilize the private sector with financial organizations.
